Jay O. Glerum Rigging Masterclass


The Masterclasses honor the memory of one of our industry's great advocates for safety and training, Jay O. Glerum.

Taught annually beginning in 2016, these masterclasses will have two tracks of learning, advanced and entry level.
The advanced track will be taught for ETCP renewal credit and include training on the latest innovations in rigging as well as advanced safety such as life rescue and other topics.

The entry track is geared towards students and educators and includes both counterweight and automated rigging safety and operations.
